Welcome to the first Reality Shot Thursday!
I think all the gorgeous photos out there in the blogiverse are wonderful. I love seeing them and I’m continually impressed by how beautifully they are staged. That being said, it’s easy to think that bloggers actually live that way every day. And maybe some do. But most of us don’t. We move aside piles of stuff to create a pretty vignette to photograph. So I thought: why not post what I call a Reality Shot once a week? My first Reality Shot was last Thursday and this is the first week of the weekly meme. I’m so glad you’re here.
My shot this week needs some background.
This is the bench in my kitchen. We keep various tools and other essentials inside the bench. I added some cushions with different patterns and textures that tied in with the colors in the kitchen. I used to post some of my photos on Houzz and this one has the most hits, which continually surprises me. Over 270 people have added it to their ideabooks. I just checked and it’s still being added on a daily basis. Go figure.
Here is the way it looks on a normal day (if only we had a mud room!):
Cushions not perfectly aligned
Shoes under the bench
damp, muddy towels used to wipe the dogs’ paws in the wet, rainy weather
a staple gun
the cardboard holder for a saw – we’d lost it and then I found it on the floor under the bench
Scout’s dog leash
more towels under the bench
Also: the photo quality isn’t as good as the first photo – it was a gray day.
That’s real life in our house.
